There are few producers in the united states who’ve had the kind of success Starkey has seen. The man has been pioneering electronic bass music since 2004 (OK Luv, released in 2005, remains in my DJ set to this very day) and through the rise and fall of dubstep, he never wavered in his unique, experimental production style and contributed in a major way to what I consider the “american wonky / purple” movement (something that would later be defined by producers across the pond like Joker and Guido). This dude has been ahead of the curve for a decade…
…And now he’s back with a brand new 4-track EP! BA66 is released today on Smog Records and we have the premiere of the track Anyone ft. Coco & Shinobi right here for your listening pleasure! The track sort of draws upon the old UK grimey vibe of the late 2000’s (maybe I’m just conditioned to hear the Amen break whenever I hear that style of rapping) but Starkey does a beautiful job of incorporating that sound into a bigger, more cinematic package. How would you classify this kind of music? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter.
